III. Older Christians must continue to learn.


God is not done with older Christians, so neither should the church be.

This is a great sermon. I was looking for something that would encourage people my age to stay active in the church instead of feeling left behind.

My understanding and evaluation exactly, but am concerned that this is not the consensus of those around me. So I am between two opinions--simply attend and offer nothing beyond my presence and tithes and offerings or simply not go.
